Talk about a sequence

It is indeed a very interesting sequence. 3^2 + 4^2 = 5^2. Thusly 3 ,4, 5. You have all positive integers. These are called pythagorean triples. I like your diargram.
Other examples:
( 5, 12, 13) ( 7, 24, 25) ( 8, 15, 17)
( 9, 40, 41) (11, 60, 61) (12, 35, 37) (13, 84, 85) (16, 63, 65) (20, 21, 29) (28, 45, 53) (33, 56, 65) (36, 77, 85) (39, 80, 89) (48, 55, 73) (65, 72, 97)

I don't dig the

stereotypes. I just find it funny that
popularity sells, and creativity goes
very far here on Summitpost.

A wise man...

once said: "humans are different from animal: thanks to math they can understand nature. God is different from humans: He does not need math to understand the universe. This is a fact. The other important fact is that humans usully get bored, God and the animals no"
